Javed Akhtar doesn't want MS Dhoni to retire

By Bombay Talkies 07 28, 2019 | 06:02 PM
After Lata Mangeshkar, veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar has appealed MS Dhoni to not take retirement.
However, Akhtar feels Dhoni -- whose understanding of the game is an advantage for the team -- has a lot of cricket still left in him. "As a middle order batsman or a wicket keeper, M.S. Dhoni is totally dependable and trustworthy. Virat is graceful enough to accept that Dhoni's understanding of game is an advantage for the team. One can see that a lot of cricket is still left in him. Why even talk about his retirement," tweeted Akhtar on Friday.Earlier on Thursday, Lata Mangeshkar requested the 37-year-old Indian cricketer not to retire from the game. "These days, I have been hearing that you plan to retire. Please don't think this way. The country needs you and it is my request, too, that you don't allow even the thought of retirement to enter your mind," Mangeshkar tweeted in Hindi. In a heart-warming gesture the 89-year-old singer also left an encouraging note for Team India, to help them tide over their defeat. She dedicated her 1994 song, "Akash ke us paar bhi", to the Men in Blue. "We did not win yesterday, but we didn't lose. I dedicate this song by Gulzar sahab to our team," she said in another tweet.
